What Matters Most
Since the beginning in 2009, ICS has had a focus on giving back to the Greater Saint John community. It's our local organizations that shape our community and with creative support, they are able to do big things. Each year our team has given back to the community by providing marketing and advertising services, hardware and software solutions, event planning services, and monetary donations.
the gift of time (and sometimes groceries)
On top of volunteering and donating services as an organization, our ICS team donates plenty of personal time. As a company, we try to do a larger donation to our local food bank, Romero House, at least once per year around Christmas. More often when we can!
We can't take any credit as a company, but we're proud to say that our team regularly donates their personal time these local organizations:
Celebrating 10 Years With A Social Cause
For our 10th year in business we wanted to do something special. We created a community based giveaway where people would submit their favorite and most deserving non-profit organizations that needed marketing help. With over $35,000 in donated services we were able to give 10 unique marketing services to the winners.
Who We Helped
Workers 4 Wishes Website
Our grand prize winner of a custom website build with lifetime free hosting and security, Workers 4 Wishes is a registered charity that is dedicated to granting wishes to children in New Brunswick, who face life-threatening illness.
With our help, we have been able to help elevate the organizations story by sharing the wishes they have granted for kids over the years as well as make it easier for them to generate public and commercial donations.
Saint John Tool Library Video
The Saint John Tool Library was the winner of a 30-second video to explain their business and how it has impacted Saint John and surrounding areas.
With the help of the SJTL staff and board, we were able to do just that.
Within 30 seconds you realize the value of having a large library of tools, available for rent at your fingertips. The flexible and affordable nature of SJTL is any DIY'ers dream.
The SJTL has since expanded its operations to include classes, educational resources, tool library expansion(s) and various charitable missions. We were happy to help spread the word about the Saint John Tool Library in a positive and informative way.
Sophia Recovery Centre Photoshoot
This amazing organization provides a safe environment for women seeking healing through education, acceptance and continuing care for those in recovery from addiction.
Sophia Recovery Centre wanted to capture its team and their surroundings to help show its calm and welcoming nature as well as the plethora of resources available for all who enter its doors.
We happily snapped photos of the Sophia Recovery team in their element - warm tones, welcoming smiles, as well as the centre. Comfortable seating, loads of natural light and an environment that fosters communication, education and healing.
In the words of Sophia Recovery Centre, "When women recover, communities are transformed."
Saint John Legal Aid Logo
A logo is a wonderful thing. It gives a glimpse into what a company does and who they are but still remains subjective.
Saint John Legal Aid asked us to create something that was powerful but had a stoic and humble presence and stayed true to the roots of the organization.
The Moose was chosen to show the tenacity and power of Saint John Legal Aid. To show they are always charging ahead to provide the best and most efficient service possible.
